MOUNT OLIVE - Police in Mount Olive say search teams have temporarily suspended their efforts to search for a second teenager who disappeared in the ice cold waters of Budd Lake.

Earlier today, police pulled the body of Nick Cianciotto from the frigid water.

Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp says the search will resume Wednesday morning to recover the other missing teen, Clyde Schimanski.

Screams for help last night set off a massive search and rescue operation at around 6:20 p.m.

Knapp said state police dive teams used sonar to try and locate the bodies and were on the bottom of Budd Lake for more than two hours.
